Paytm Adds Useful New Features To Their App

Paytm Passbook

The world is increasingly mobile: people want access from wherever they are, whenever they need it. With Paytm, you have the option of recharging and shopping from whenever, anywhere and are equipped with a secure online wallet called Paytm Cash. The recent app update has added a set of useful new features.

Paytm is India’s largest mobile commerce platform. Paytm started by offering mobile recharge and utility bill payments and today it offers a full marketplace to consumers on its mobile apps. They have over 100 million registered users. In a short span of time Paytm has scaled to more than 60 Million orders per month.Paytm is the consumer brand of India’s leading mobile internet company One97 Communications. One97 investors include Ant Financial (AliPay), SAIF Partners, Sapphire Venture and Silicon Valley Bank.

In addition to usability, Paytm has always strived to create accessibility, convenience and credibility. Simplicity reflects in their home page design and this mantra has been followed throughout the site and their apps. They have a generic Paytm app and also a more focused Paytm wallet app.

With fintech and payment technology disruption at their heart, they have been incrementally making changes to their app structure and flow that have improved the overall experience. Their user base has been largely happy with these changes that they have been ringing in regularly. The latest update has brought a bevy of new features that users will find very useful. Let us look at what they are
